PROVO — The attorney for a Brigham Young University student accused of assaulting over a dozen women as he jogged by says the validity of the case revolves around just how fast the 23-year-old could possibly run.

Nathan Fletcher appeared holding his wife’s hand in Utah court Thursday, with his parents close behind.

Attorney John Allan says Fletcher was kicked out of school and banished from campus, but the evidence against him doesn’t add up.

Allan says one surveillance camera shows a suspect in lime-green shorts. Other footage captured a mile away just 10 minutes later shows the suspect in blue shorts.

Allan questioned how he could zip between the two and execute a wardrobe change in the process.

The Daily Herald of Provo reports ( ) that Fletcher is due back in court July 16.
